Shoppers can select Saturday delivery during checkout to get the HTC One delivered in an expedited fashion. The cutoff for the T-Mobile HTC One saturday delivery is 5 PM eastern. A Saturday delivery for the HTC One will run $25, but since T-Mobile is waiving the activation fee it’s an easier option to pick at checkout. Estimated HTC One delivery is set for Saturday morning.

T-Mobile starts taking orders for the un-branded T-Mobile HTC One with an option for Saturday delivery.

The HTC One is $99 up front and qualified T-Mobile customers can pay $20 a month for the next 24 months to pay off the phone. This is part of T-Mobile’s switch to no contracts on plans. Users will need to pay full price for the phone over two years, but the phone contract is separate from the plan making it possible to switch carriers or get a new phone without a new plan.

The HTC One features a 4.7-inch 1080P HD display and an all metal design that rivals the iPhone 5. The HTC One earned the Gotta Be Mobile Editor’s choice award where we called it, “the best built Android smartphone we’ve ever used.”

The HTC One features a Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 processor and an Ultrapixel camera that delivers good low light photos. Check out our HTC One photo samples and video samples to see how the 4MP Ultrapixel camera fares.

In addition to the hardware, the HTC One includes HTC Sense 5, n updated version of HTC’s Android skin that delivers tasteful and usable features like HTC BlinkFeed and HTC Zoe. HTC Blinkfeed is a new Android home screen that pulls in customizable content from hundreds of sources and from Facebook and Twitter into an image-centric easily scannable home screen. The phone still delivers a traditional home screen with a swipe.

The HTC Zoe feature captures 20 photos and three seconds of video with a single push of the shutter, creating a living photo. Users can then combine frames to show motion, pick the best frame and more.

The HTC One can connect to T-Mobile’s fledgling LTE network for blazing fast connection speeds in a small number of cities. T-Mobile is committed to growing 4G LTE coverage during 2013. In addition to availability on T-Mobile, the HTC One is available on AT&T and Sprint, with rumors of a Verizon HTC One.

    I got my HTC One from the store yesterday and it is such a good phone. Along with the all aluminum body, I love the 1080p display that makes everything from text to videos look amazing. I keep up with my shows while I’m on my way to work at DISH since it takes a while to get there. The full HD display works well with the DISH Anywhere app on the HTC One and my shows look so crisp and clear now.
